Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Additive identity for the complex numbers

    0 + 0i is the complex number zero

  • Augmented matrix

    A matrix that represents a system of equations.

  • Distributive property

    a(b + c) = ab + ac and related properties

  • Frequency

    Reciprocal of the period of a sinusoid.

  • Graph of a polar equation

    The set of all points in the polar coordinate system corresponding to the ordered pairs (r,?) that are solutions of the polar equation.

  • Graphical model

    A visible representation of a numerical or algebraic model.

  • Linear programming problem

    A method of solving certain problems involving maximizing or minimizing a function of two variables (called an objective function) subject to restrictions (called constraints)

  • Local extremum

    A local maximum or a local minimum

  • Measure of spread

    A measure that tells how widely distributed data are.

  • Order of magnitude (of n)

    log n.

  • Outliers

    Data items more than 1.5 times the IQR below the first quartile or above the third quartile.

  • Parametric equations for a line in space

    The line through P0(x 0, y0, z 0) in the direction of the nonzero vector v = <a, b, c> has parametric equations x = x 0 + at, y = y 0 + bt, z = z0 + ct.

  • Projectile motion

    The movement of an object that is subject only to the force of gravity

  • Random numbers

    Numbers that can be used by researchers to simulate randomness in scientific studies (they are usually obtained from lengthy tables of decimal digits that have been generated by verifiably random natural phenomena).

  • Scatter plot

    A plot of all the ordered pairs of a two-variable data set on a coordinate plane.

  • Singular matrix

    A square matrix with zero determinant

  • Sinusoidal regression

    A procedure for fitting a curve y = a sin (bx + c) + d to a set of data

  • Solve by substitution

    Method for solving systems of linear equations.

  • Supply curve

    p = ƒ(x), where x represents production and p represents price

  • Vertical asymptote

    The line x = a is a vertical asymptote of the graph of the function ƒ if limx:a+ ƒ1x2 = q or lim x:a- ƒ1x2 = q.
